Met Office updates weather warnings for weekend

Weather map

The Met Office has issued a further weather warning as we approach the weekend saying strong winds may bring disruption to travel and utilities across parts of the UK on Sunday and early Monday.

The yellow weather warning is effective from 6:00am on Sunday 21st to 6:00am on Monday 22nd January.

A Met Office spokesperson commented:

"Strong winds are expected to develop widely across the UK on Sunday. Within the warning area, many places are likely to see southwesterly winds gust to around 50-60 mph and gusts may reach 60-70 mph for exposed locations.

"There remains a chance of stronger winds impacting parts of this area for a time but this aspect remains uncertain with further updates to the warning to be expected over the coming days."

A wet and windy spell comes after the wintry conditions experienced across Northern Ireland this week.

Ahead of the weekend a number of weather warnings remain in place for wintry conditions.

Thursday 18th January

A yellow weather warning is in place for further snow showers and icy conditions until 11:59pm on Thursday night.

Friday 19th January

A yellow weather warning is in place for icy conditions 12:00am to 10:00am on Friday morning.

Wintry showers on Thursday will leave some surfaces damp into Friday. With skies clearing air and surface temperatures will fall below zero. Icy stretches are likely where surfaces remain damp, with a risk of black ice in places.

Saturday 20th January

No weather warnings have been issued for Saturday.
